I think on a pure marketing angle the USA needs to try disassociate Socialism from Communism. The lines between the two have been deliberately blurred, by the USA government, to ensure public support for greater  control, military expansion and the agenda that only really  benefited the already existing elite and wealthy  in the 50/60’s.  The “commi in the cupboard” scare tactics of  constructing a fictitious common hatred (that ol’ tried and tested technique) is now why successful Socialist countries are flatly dismissed as the good examples, by the average American,  as the bad guys e.g. Russia, china and even Nazi Germany are rolled out as being one of the same thing and halting any open and sensible discussion and debate. Propaganda  is so bad that to even mention the word “socialism” is somehow linked to dictatorships or not being patriotic (whatever being patriotic is).  The  more successful socialist countries (particular the Scandinavian ones)  are actually more aligned with the average USA citizens goals (i.e. for them, their families and country)  than their current USA government will ever be. The ethos of work hard and get rewarded accordingly is more prevalent in these socialist countries than the USA,  but unlike the USA the wealth generated by the very same ethos is distributed to all fairly and not just to the top few as per the current USA model.
